I have tried most of the suggestions here with only minor success. Six months ago I came across a Bulgarian discussion on the same topic and one of the solutions actually worked for me. I have had the fungus on all of my toenails on the left foot as well as the athlete's foot itch and this is how it all went away. It is pills. I can only give the name in Bulgarian as I am not sure how this would be in English - ????????. In Bulgaria each capsule costs approximately 1.2 euros. I started taking one capsule a day and after almost six months all of my previously infected toenails have now nearly been replaced by the new, pink and fungus free ones. You need to continue taking the pills for 1 year (until the new toenails have complete grown). I still have a few months to go before they clear completely. The athlete's foot itch is also gone. Perhaps I should mention that I used to have a very sweet tooth which probably was a contributing factor but when I started taking the pills I reduced my sugar intake quite a bit to help the process.
My father had toenail fungus on both of his big toes, with the nails thickened to about 1/4 inch thick. We propped his foot up on a stool and I dripped a few drops of Oil of Oregano on and under the nail. After a couple weeks the thickened nails fell off while he was asleep to reveal a new (slightly deformed) nail underneath.
Toenail fungus is the common disease that can be happen to the people and this generally happens to the old age people. This is also contagious and if left untreated this may move from one foot to another and can also cause pain and bleeding sores. To treat it completely you need to make use of the compete treatment. You can make use of the Zetaclear, it is completely herbal as it is made from the natural ingredients such as tea tree leaf oil, Vitamin E, and lavender oil, so there is no chance of any side effects.
Soaked feet in one part bleach and two parts water for about 15 minutes. Took a new emery board & used pumas stone and would file over the thick nail and then resoak foot as I worked on the other one. Kept doing this until alot of the thickness was removed. Air dried feet. Rubbed vicks vapor rub & socks in evening before bed. In morning rubbed some coconut oil on nails before putting on stockings/sock. Nails are looking great, continuing process in hopes to be fungual free. I would think that if bleach is too harsh probably using some peroxide and water would be just as good. Take it slow and see what works best for you.
Dip ur feet in warm water and sprinkle a bit of salt in it. Or dettol etc.
Do it for 4-5 days atleast and fungus would start going away.
Another thing which can help is the vicks vapourab on the affected toenail. And then wear socks.
To avoid it for future. Wear tidy socks. Change ur socks daily and make sure ur feet are exposed to fresh air or are without socks for an hour per day.

My husband has been suffering from awful toe fungus on both of his feet for years. We have searched high and low for something that would get rid of this naturally and after years, someone recommended we look at Neem. We have tried almost everything with some improvement but no luck to get rid of it completely. Skeptical at first, we did some research on Neem and found that the top Neem benefit is that it is anti fungal. YAY. We found that Neem Oil is great and also found a cream called 'Alpha Fungal Neem Cream' from All About Neem that is perfect. This way we can kill the fungus and moisturize at the same time.
The company is SO helpful with any questions you have and I am extremely grateful to my friend who pointed me in this direction. We also found that Neem can help so many other areas of our health and have tried other things now that my husbands toe fungus has improved. Wish we could share our before and after pictures. Thanks for sharing this great article and wanted to provide another option that worked for my husband.
For my toe nail fungus fix I soaked my feet in apple cider vinegar/warm water for 15-20 then dried well used an attachment from my manicure set and it was so easy to remove the Ick (as I call it) from under toe nail and then filed down toe nail as much as possible the I soaked in a soluation of vinegar and baking soda repeated every night after 1 week Pretty Feet. Removing the build up under toe nail was soooo much easier to do after soaking because it was soft and I could get all around the toe. Good Luck
There used to be a fantastic product called PAV by NATR (NATIVE AMERICAN TREE RESIN)- my Mom had terrible mushroom like fungus on all her toes. She was 90+ and used to sleep with socks & shoes on to be ready. This stuff totally cured it - It was a pine resin - pure pitch that I would paint on with a toothpick. The aides & doctors couldn't believe the results. The owner died, but I would love to find this again as now I have a light case of fungus. I've been experimenting with ponderosa pine sap & grain alcohol (tincture) that has produced good results, but not as good as the product mentioned. I would love to hear if anyone knows of this PAV ointment, or knows the formula to make it.
I completely lost a nail to toenail fungus. When the new nail came in it was also infected. I applied honey to the nail morning and night for at least 2 or 3 weeks. I could see it slowly improving and now it is completely healed and normal looking.
